Notice – Before You Flush

Town staff wish to remind residents of the importance of not flushing anything other than the 3 P’s – pee, poo and paper (toilet paper) down the toilet. Baby wipes, feminine products, cleaning and disinfectant wipes, as well as toilet bowl scrubbers and some heavy-duty paper towels might be labeled as disposable or flushable but these items should not go down the drain.  These products do not break down in the sewer system and can cause plug household lines, sewer mains, and pumps, resulting in sewer backups, costly cleanups and sewage plant equipment failures.
